Biography

Zakir was born a normal child but at 3 months suffered a bleed to the brain which left him severley disabled. I have been his permanent foster carer since he was 11 months old. He is PEG fed and is nil by mouth as he chokes very easily. He has 6-8 seizures a day and is in and out of hospital with chest infections. He has no use of his arms and legs and has to be hoisted in and out of his bed and chairs. We have been told that his development is stuck at that of a 6 month old. He is non verbal and lets us know how he feels by facial expression or crying.

Despite all of this Zakir is a lovely boy who is adored by all who meet him. He has a lovely smile and occasionally an infectious laugh. He loves being spoken to and adores other children. He loves music and bright lights. He also likes his hydrotherapy lessons at school.
